Hello, Is There Anybody Like Me?!?

No it's not Bipolar Sunday, but if any of you have read my Sunday posts then you know, that I am. So for anyone who might be sensitive to the subject today's post may not be for you, because I like to make light of my "mental illness" (as some will use as a defense in court) because, well it makes it easier for me to deal with. I am not schizophrenic, but I do what the voices tell me to (that is my boss at work.) 

I set goals for myself, I set them ALL the time, but I never seem to achieve them on my own. If I set a goal, then someone has to ride my behind the whole time to keep me focused. The only thing I can do on my own is take my meds, and well that's because they are sitting there every day staring me in the face. Now if they were put up some where, I'd never take them and probably end up divorced, because yes I'm very mean at times. So I sit and ponder today, how is it I can make myself achieve goals on my own. If I don't keep them in my face or have someone riding me about them, I'll never achieve them. I have the same lame excuse every time for myself "life just gets in the way." Yeah, I'm sure I'm not the only one who's used that, but am I the only one who uses it ALL the time?

I want to lose weight, and I want to live a healthier lifestyle. So what have I said to myself "I'll quit smoking!" But I will always quit after this pack, that is until I'm about to run out and off to the store I go for another. I'm going to eat healthier, more fruits and veggies and stuff. Oh and I'm going to, right until I get home and I'm to tired to make a healthy meal, and the fruits well, uhm, yeah don't have an excuse for that one other then I don't. I'm going to stop drinking so much soda, that is until I realize that I've run out and go into full blown panic mode.

So I ask, am I the only one out there like this? Is there any way to get past life and get on w/ actually accomplishing a goal on my own?

  5. I have to pick one goal to work on at a time...then when I get through that one I start a new one...too many at a time makes me crazy!

  6. Hi there! I'm a Friday Follow. Like you, I've got lots of plans, but the execution doesn't always work out very well. Look forward to checking out your blog in the future.

  7. I'm with Tammy about one goal at a time. I like that idea.

  8. I am the same way about eating...I have good intentions but no follow through.

  9. Too bad we're not neighbors. I'm diabetic. Recently found out that I need to be on added meds. Those are in my face but I seem to choose not to take them because "I want to start it on a day I'd remember." Or "I don't feel I need Vitamin D/C supplements." And "Fish oil.. I don't like the name." To get insulin in me, I had to get an insulin pump because multiple shots just weren't working out for me.

    i need to quit smoking, quit drinking soda (even though it's diet), and I need to lose 40lbs. But my excuses seem to be the same--- Just excuses. I could do better I'm sure. So, definitely don't feel like you're the only one. There is ALWAYS a wagon to fall off of. I've decided at some point (just an excuse again) I will pick my battles and start doing things one at a time. Like for eating right. Cooking ahead of time so that when I get home I'll have food in the fridge and may skip the Wendy's or the cookies. (It's not going to happen anytime soon, but you get the idea.)
